- The script code represented by the constant
smUninterpis available for representation of special symbols, such as items in a tool palette, that must not be considered as part of any actual script system. For manipulating and drawing such symbols, the
smUninterpconstant should be treated as if it indicated the Roman script system rather than the system script; that is, the default behavior of uninterpreted symbols should be Roman.
- The script code represented by the constant smRSymbol is available as an alternative to
smUninterp, for representation of special symbols that have a right-to-left line direction. Note, however, that the script management system provides no direct support for representation of text with this script code.
